South School Music News

Dear South School Parents,

Can you believe that we are at the halfway point for this school year? Time really flies. I wanted to give you an update as to what we have been learning in music class. Read more...

Student Safety Reminders

Pick Up/Drop Off - Please do not stop in front of the school building. Pull around to the farthest parking lot. This will allow buses and cars to get off of South Franklin Street much quicker.

Buses - When buses are loading or unloading in front of the school building and red lights are flashing, cars should not be passing.

South Franklin Street - Parking in front of the yellow pole on the south side creates a visibility issue for the crossing guard. Please do not park there if loading or unloading.

Speed Limit/Crosswalk - Please keep your speed at or below the 20 MPH posted limit. Stop for anybody in crosswalks. 

Thank you for keeping South School students safe!

Buses begin each route at 7:00 A.M.
Please note that starting times and routes are subject to change.

Bus Transportation Change Request

All students are scheduled to ride the bus from their home address. If you are requesting a change in your child’s bus stop to a day care address, you must fill out a form for this. Forms are available in the school office for next year or you can download here:
This form must be approved annually. Please note that transportation requests must be submitted by Friday, August 9, 2013 in order to be effective for the start of the 2013 – 2014 school year. Forms can be mailed to the JFK School at 339 Plymouth Street, Attention: Kathy Franchi.
